LAPT Vina del Mar: More flopping, less flipping

We'll be honest. We consider Brazilian Gualter Salles to be one heckuva nice guy. He is unassuming, friendly, and seems generally happy to be competing on the Latin American Poker Tour. When things don't go his way at the tables, he smiles, shrugs, and walks away.

In his other line of work, a bad day didn't involve a river suckout. It looked more like what you see in the video below. In fact, it looked exactly like it does below. That flipping, disintegrating piece of machine was at one time wrapped around Salles.

After watching that a couple of times, there's little question why Salles is so easy-going at the tables.

Here's an interview shot with Salles a little bit earlier today.
